In the 1980s he directed a video for a rock band who took their name from one of his films--Faster Pussycat. The bands Vixen and Mudhoney also took their names from Meyer film titles, even though Meyer had no connection to them.


Famous for his breast fetish, Meyer would often cast women in their first trimester of pregnancy as their breasts would have ballooned even further. He also had a dislike for augmented breasts and would not be featured in his films until Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens (1979).


In 1977, Malcolm McLaren hired Meyer to direct a film starring Sex Pistols. Meyer handed the scriptwriting duties over to Roger Ebert, who, in collaboration with McLaren, produced a screenplay entitled "Who Killed Bambi?". According to Ebert, filming ended after a day and a half when the electricians walked off the set after McLaren was unable to pay them (McLaren has claimed that the project actually died at the behest of main financier 20th Century-Fox, under the pretext that "We are in the business of making family entertainment.").


The first of these, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970), was an enormous hit, but after the lukewarm reception of the uncharacteristically serious The Seven Minutes (1971), Meyer returned to the sex-and-violence films that made his name, culminating in the delirious Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens (1979).


After the blockbusting Vixen! (1968), he was hired by 20th-Century Fox to make studio pictures.


Although his films objectified women and often displayed female sexuality and nudity, his films have a cult following among gay men and are popular among them, especially Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965) and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970).


In the mid-1960s, he established his style with his Gothic period, a quartet of black-and-white films: Russ Meyer's Lorna (1964), Mudhoney (1965), Motorpsycho! (1965), and Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965) that many consider to be his best work.


Russell Albion Meyer was born in San Leandro, California, to Lydia Lucinda (Hauck), a nurse, and William Arthur Meyer, a police officer, who divorced during his childhood. His parents were both of German descent. Meyer began winning prizes at 15 with his amateur films. He spent World War II in Europe as a combat cameraman. After the war, he became a professional photographer, shooting some of the earliest Playboy centerfolds. He made his film directorial debut with Mr. Tease and His Playthings (1959), the first nudie (softcore sex) film to make a profit over a million dollars, which led to a string of self-financed films that gradually became more bizarre, violent, and cartoonish.


After his army service he returned to Hollywood and got a job as an industrial cameraman (1945) with the Local 659 Guild of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE). After he was regraded to still man (1955), he found work as a still photographer (uncredited) for The Red Skelton Hour (1951), and episodes of such television series as Cheyenne (1955), Gunsmoke (1955), Richard Diamond, Private Detective (1957), Perry Mason (1957), Maverick (1957), Have Gun - Will Travel (1957), Sea Hunt (1958), Rawhide (1959), The Twilight Zone (1959) and The Fugitive (1963).


Served in the US Army during World War II, with the 166th Signal Photographic Company, attaining the rank of Staff Sergeant and was commissioned to the 3rd US Army Headquarters, under the command of Gen. George S. Patton. On the afternoon of July 3, 1944, his section (Newsreel Unit #1) boarded a landing ship tank (LST) pointing to Normandy, France. Meyeropted to land early before the headquarters' company, and went over the side to a waiting landing craft infantry (LCI), getting a preview of the war immediately at hand. His camerawork--both at rest and during infantry and artillery action--received good reviews from his superiors; his composition and coverage often received special favorable mention. On June 2, 1945, he did a special request for Gen. Patton, and the footage he shot is used in Patton (1970), and seems to have influenced the statue of Patton at the West Point Military Academy, New York.
